Wyoming Man Charged with Escape from Custody

U.S. Attorney for the District of Wyoming Christopher A. Crofts announced that Louis Slone Yellowfox, a Northern Arapaho Tribal member of the Wind River Indian Reservation appeared in federal court after having been indicted for escape. The July 19, 2012, indictment alleges that he escaped from custody, when he willfully failed to return within the time prescribed to the Community Alternatives of Casper, an institutional facility in which he was lawfully confined at the direction of the Attorney General by virtue of a judgment and commitment of the United States District Court for the District of Wyoming. This offense carries a penalty of up to five years imprisonment and a $250,000.00 fine. Trial has been set for December, 2012, before Chief Judge Nancy Freudenthal. An indictment is only an accusation. In every criminal case, the accused is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty, and the government always has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
